And I got to see a Kookaburra! Who didn't learn that little song as a young child!
Of course I got up close to a Koala Bear - but no touching - that is a no no. Besides - check out those claws!
Lots of wonderful flowers - even though it was fall! I LOVED the gum blossoms. And the Bird of Paradise.
The trees were even amazing! The top picture are Morton Fig Trees.
Lorikeets everwhere too - but they were harder to get pictures of!
And of course your YUCKY animals - HUGE spiders and snakes. The Red Bellied Black snake is very poisonois - so I was glad it was dead!
And above, the fern like things are Budawang (In the Budawang Range). The aboriginals and local people used to grind up the roots to make a flour for damper (bread). Maybe the still do? Not sure.
And below are the views I had most every day out the front and back of my friends house! It was heaven!
